Cowboy Ethan...

I write this post with a heavy heart...I received the news tonight that Alicia Weiman's 4 year old son Ethan, has been called home. I am glad in one sense, that he will no longer suffer, and that he will be free of pain, and in a place that is so wonderful, yet I grieve for his family.

I can't imagine what they are going through right now, how devastating to lose someone so young, to such a rotten, dreadful disease.

Krisitn Bueter has set up a paypal account on behalf of the My Time to Create Challenge Team, to accept donations for the Weiman family. If you are interested in donating, click on the widget in my sidebar. Of course, the family can use as many prayers as you can spare for them.

















I made this tonight, in honor of Ethan. I colored him in a similar fashion to my favorite photo that Alicia shared of Ethan in this blog post. What a HAPPY picture, right? I love it, and that's how I'll chose to see Ethan, now, at home in heaven...kicking up his heels, and having a GREAT time.

God Bless you and keep you Ethan...
God Bless the Weiman family...

Your card is such a wonderful tribute. My heart is broken for this family. Because I have a 4 year old son, I can't even begin to imagine their pain right now. I will keep them in my prayers.

What a wonderful way to show how much you love Ethan and his family. My heart is heavy after reading this post...I have 2 little ones and I can't even imagine. I'll be keeping them in my thoughts. You're a wonderful person, Tracey. Hugs to you.

What a fitting tribute card to this wonderful little boy...I've watched through her blog their struggles, my heart goes out to their family...your card I think captures Ethan's essence to a "t"...

This is such a beautiful card, Tracey...and a sweet post. I'm crying again even though I know Ethan is in a better place and pain-free. An angelic cowboy in life and death.
